In order to investigate the relation between foot sizes and leather shoes sizes, the foot lengths and ball-joint girths of right and left feet in Japanese adults(149 males and 178 females)were measured. Their proper shoes sizes were assigned to JIS Standard from the measurement values. The similarity between proper size and self-styleed size of leather shoes in each subject was investigated concerned with three grades of favorite fitted feeling of the foot to shoes: "tight," "fit" and "loose." The most frequent self-styled sizes were 25.0(cm) EEE in males and 23.0(cm) EE in females in JIS Standard. The 38% in males and 59% in females recognized their self-styled sizes of their foot lengths, but without the recognition of their ball-joint girths. As the grade of fitted feeling shifted from "tight" to "loose," the difference between proper size and self-styled size of the foot length became bigger in males, but the tendency was not clear in females.
